CFP – Why Public History?

 In Autumn 2017 the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University Belfast is launching its new Centre for Public History. An interdisciplinary initiative, the Centre aims to provide a broad approach to the multi-faceted method of public history – in theory, application, and critique. This inaugural annual conference begins that task by seeking to assess the current state of the discipline. It asks a simple but vital question: in an age of ‘fake news’, ‘history wars’, and ‘impact agendas’, what role do scholars and practitioners have in shaping the relationship between the public and the place of the past?

 

The conference on 7th and 8th December 2017 will feature the annual Keith Jeffery Memorial Lecture, to be delivered this year by Professor Jock Phillips. Reflective keynote lectures will also be given by Professor Ludmilla Jordanova (Durham University)and Professor Peter Mandler (University of Cambridge)

Bursaries: A limited number of bursaries of £300, covering the conference fee, travel, and accommodation, are available for postgraduate and ECR (within three years of PhD) who are delivering a paper. Anyone seeking to avail of this should indicate when emailing their abstract.
